Get the Best Picture: Watch the Right Type of Channels

Posted on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

CFU offers four types of TV signals to our customers. We carry four sets of channels so customers can match the type of signal to every TV and get the best possible picture.

For the best possible picture, watch in HD! High definition channels offer you the sharpest picture and digital sound quality.

Tune to channels listed in the HD (high definition) column when watching your HDTV that is connected to an HD set-top box or DVR. If you rent an EZ HD tuner, use the corresponding EZ HD channel numbers.

The HD channels are free when you have the box or tuner. You’ll also see the HD channels and the SD channels in your onscreen interactive program guide.

Tune to channels listed in the Analog column of our channel guide when watching an analog TV (an older style) without a set-top box or tuner. We’ve retained these channels so customers can easily use any TV, old or new. That means if you have an older style TV, you don’t have to rent additional equipment to view all of your favorite channels.

Your HDTV (flat screen TV) was not made to display analog signals! Tune to the channels listed in the Digital column when watching your HDTV that is not connected to a set-top box, DVR or EZ HD tuner. A digital signal will offer a much clearer picture. Use your TV’s channel scan feature to detect and save the digital (QAM) channels and delete the analog channels.
